My goal is to not only play and commit to a school that will challenge me athletically, but also academically. I hope to major in Health Sciences and pursue a career in the medical field. I come from a Haitian household of immigrants, but I was born in the United States. I speak Haitian Creole and I am near-native fluent in Spanish. I am currently enrolled in 3 International Baccalaureate (IB, English, Spanish, and Biology) classes and I am ranked as one of the top 10% of students in my class of roughly 900-950 kids. I have maintained an A- average in the classroom. I am hardworking and when I am assigned a task, I always make sure to complete it.
I started playing volleyball in 8th grade and I knew I wanted to be able to compete at the highest level I could achieve. I was a starter on my high school freshman team freshman year. I got pulled up to varsity sophomore year as a starter. I never played JV. When I am not doing homework or playing, I am at the gym lifting weights to further develop my strength. Due to limited finances, a trainer is not available to me so I participate in football workouts. As a libero, I understand the importance of defense even though it may be overlooked. I constantly train to improve my serve receive skills, my defense, and my out-of-system sets with my hands and platform. I acknowledge that I am 5"3', but where I lack in height I make up for in helping my teammates and being vocal by telling them which spots on the court are open and how many blockers are up. Liberos like Alexis Dirige have motivated me to be big in other aspects of the game although we are both short.
One of my nicknames on my club team was “gold digger” because I am always digging the ball and hustling to make sure it does not touch the floor. I make a good candidate as a recruit because I believe I am able to bring lots of energy to the court. I am a vocal leader and I understand that making mistakes is part of the game and you must uplift your teammates rather than bring them down.
